a. Sub-Themes of the Conference

  1. Sustainable Management of Pandemic;
  2. Global Change, Responses and Strategies for Limiting Pandemic;
  3. Modeling and Monitoring of Pandemic;
  4. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as Leveraging tools for Management of Pandemic;

Objectives

The main objective of the International Conference is to create global awareness on the role of science and technology in the realization research and development in era of pandemic that has been a threat to livelihoods across the globe.

The specific objectives of the conference are as follows:

  • Serve as window opener for application of science and technology to enhance research and development in the mitigation and management of the pandemic
  • Provide international platform for deliberation, debate, exchange and disseminate knowledge between scientist, technologist, engineers, academicians, and researches in science and technology
  • Enhance the capacity of the participant on the role of science and technology in the realization of research and development in the era of pandemic
  • Encourage collaborations and networking among academicians, practitioners, and Government officials in the actualization of research and development for enhance resilience and mitigation of pandemic
  • Offer opportunity to industries and policy makers to get feedback from research ideas and findings presented at the conference

METHODOLOGY

The conference shall consist of plenary sessions, technical sessions, and a high-level round table.

The sequential structuring of the conference is as follows:

Opening plenary session:This session focuses on keynote addresses on general and/or strategic orientations, concept clarifications and possible paradigms proposed likely to guide new intervention approaches to achieve more significant results;

Thematic sessions:These sessions will focus on role of science and technology in the realization research and development in era of pandemic to enhance mitigation, sustainable management and resilience,

Round Table:This high-level round table will focus on the presentation of the conclusions of technical sessions which should pave the way for pragmatic and landmark recommendations.

Opening plenary session:This session will focus on two (5) significant papers. The papers are on:

  • Tracking Vaccination Using Remote Sensing and GIS a Practical Approach.
  • Utilization -of Satellite Infrastructure for Sustainable Development in and Post Covid -era
  • Chemistry: A Central Hub of Researches in Resolution of Global Pandemic
  • Research and Innovation Imperative for National Development
  • The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Pandemic Management

These introductory notes will enable participants to better understand the expected results of the conference;

Technical or thematic sessions:These sessions will deal with papers on various topics relating to the issue role of science and technology in the realization research and development in era of pandemic. Topics related sustainable management, global change, response and strategies for limiting pandemic, modelling and monitoring of the pandemic and science, technology, engineering and mathematics as leveraging tools for management of pandemic.
